British Colombia’s Rights Commission Rejects Muslim Complaint about Magazine Article

The Human Rights Commission in the province of British Colombia has rejected a human rights complaint against Maclean’s magazine that claimed an article about Islam violated anti-hate laws. The commission found that an October 2006 article by Mark Steyn, “The Future Belongs to Islam,” did not violate such nor raise hatred against Muslims.
